‘We’ve been to hell and back’: The story every mum in Skegness should read

In a week a top criminal barrister has said men should not sleep with women who have drunk alcohol, a ​teenage Skegness girl has spoken openly of her harrowing experience as the victim of a sex attacker.

James Nathan Patten, of Sea View Road, was sentenced to two years and four months imprisonment after pleading guilty​ ​at Lincoln Crown Court to ‘engaging in penetrative sex with the girl’, who cannot be named for legal reasons.

He will also have to sign to the sex offenders register for 10 years and a life injunction was given with a condition to not contact the victim.

Following sentencing, the girl’s mother praised the special investigation team from Operation Emerald, (formed at Lincolnshire Police in 2011 following a rise in sexual assault cases across the county), for the way they handled the case.
